This is a must have book for attorneys. It shows you how to reduce the complexity of your case and lay out simple persuasive rules that a jury can follow.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not really a book but a pamphlet, July 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This does not qualify as a book. It has very wide margins and large type and still is very short. Not much substance.

2.0 out of 5 stars I love Lucky Jeans just not these jeans, April 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought these 221 thinking they would be like the other "Original Straight" 221 that I already have but these were a really skinny version that had a different cut that clung to my thighs and cut into my crotch driving me crazy. Don't buy these unless you are really skinny.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent shoe, April 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This shoe looks a little funny (as do almost all Ecco shoes) but they are so comfortable I could walk for hours in them. Great build quality. Right now I am buying all Ecco shoes because I don't care about to follow the ever changing fashion trends, I love well-built comfortable shoes, and they are almost impossible to wear out. My oldest pair in another style is 7 years old, I wear them all the time, and they are still going strong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Shoes, April 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are nice shoes and the only reason I am giving them 4 star is that they are a little bit less comfortable than the "Bradley Fashion Sneaker" version of the shoe which I also bought and which I am giving 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars great shirt, April 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice high quality shirt the slim fit is just right -- not too baggy but not too tight either. No tags on the back of the shirt to irritate my neck. I am very happy with this purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars game doesn't work, March 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Have a newer operating system, installed the game and it doesn't start at all. I love the game having played it on a PC before but this download from Amazon is a piece of junk that should be avoided.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Style but Poor Material, November 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This jacket should be made with better material even of it means costing a little more. The jacket had nice style (with the notable exception of a cheap and completely decorative-useless upper zipper) but the material feels and looks very cheap and does not like it will stand up to use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea bad book, August 14, 2012
This book could have been really good if it was written by a writer with more talent.

It is hard to describe everything that is wrong with the writing. The characters are awfull not because they are odd but because there is no substance to them besides their combination of unusual or extreme traits.

The main good gal is a black lesbian ship captain who got screwed over by her ex husband and also happens to be a super ninja. Another good gal is a bronze age native that almost instantly learns English and the 20th century, falls I'm love with the ninja and learns to be a ninja herself. The main bad guy is a sadistic twenty year old ninja who wants to rule the world and has a bad girlfriend whose only interest is literally torturing people and sex (in that order). The civil leader of Nantucket is a good guy whose only purpose is to didactically explain to the reader why he is making certain temporary choices that may seem to the reader to be unamerican. One of the bad gals is a hippie liberal who decides to help the Indian tribes fight against the modern people by trying to give them knowledge and guns except that the Indians have no idea what she wants and mostly just want to kill her.

The plot is driven by the circumstances (good) but also by these paper thin caricatures of characters (very bad) who seem to have no shade of nuance to them and never depart from their assigned roles. Other than wanting literally all of these characters to die some horrible death, I had no interest in them and kept reading thinking 'surely this book must get better at some point'.

This gives you the flavor. I would have probably enjoyed this book when I was 18 but then again my capacity for watching and reading useless stuff was much greater back then. Two stars for the idea only and one star for execution. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars like a pair of jammies, July 25, 2012
Very comfortable to wear and stretchy. Feels like a pair of jammies. I practically stopped buying other jeans and go only with the Lucky 98%cotton/2% spandex jeans.
